David Zeuthen has talked about this before, but hasn't started it yet.  Another 
candidate would be OpenSWAN, I think.

Feel free to go right ahead and see what you can do.  What we really want to 
know is whether or not we need to change the VPN API to adapt to other clients, 
and whether or not we need to change how NetworkManager sets up the IP/tunnel 
stuff.  If OpenVPN doesn't use the 'tun' kernel module, we probably will.  But 
if we don't know about it, we can't.  So in short, if you run into assumptions 
that NetworkManager makes about a particular VPN client, we can and will fix
